The Top 40 Pop Songs Artists 1992-2012, From No. 40 To No. 1

Rihanna recently listed off the women that are dominating in music today. "There's a pack. It's me, Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé... who else? Ke$ha for sure," she tells Glamour.

"Women are definitely dominating music right now, and that's because we are competitive beings," Rihanna tells Glamour. "I feel like music hasn't been this exciting in a while."

Rihanna continues to talk about her friendship with one of the women in "the pack," Katy Perry. "All my friends are guys, to be completely honest. But when I met her [Katy Perry], it was such a breath of fresh air," Rihanna tells Glamour says of Perry. "I just couldn't believe this chick had no edit button... Katy and Lady Gaga came out of the gate exactly the way they think, the way they wanna dress, the way they wanna speak."
